Planing ahead

When thinking about next year's endurance race season, I have mixed emotions about trying something new versus going back to familiar races to improve on my 2008 results. The main conflict occurs during the month of July and given the effort required to complete any of these events I will have to pick carefully.

Breck Epic Stage Race - July 5th - 10th, 2009
Cream Puff 100 - July 12, 2009
Intermontane Challenge Stage Race - July 27th - 31st, 2009
Laramie Enduro - August 1st, 2009

The Breck Epic is shaping up to be a monster. The allure of the Intermontane Challenge is the terrain. However, I would really like another shot at both the Cream Puff AND the Laramie Enduro. And there is the American Mountain Classic later in August if I feel the need to try a stage race. Hmmm.

Hey Dave, how did you get the date for the Creampuff? I thought it was in late June.

KK- Scott posted in MTBR's Endurance forum recently and announced the date. Personally, I like the late June date better.
